Early-bird registration ends February 1

Kick-off your New Year’s resolution to get fit and help animals by registering for the 28th annual Furry Scurry. This year’s event is virtual, which means you can walk, run or scurry in a way that is convenient and safe for you while helping homeless pets and horses at the Dumb Friends League.

On Saturday, May 1, join a community of people running trails, walking through neighborhoods and gaining miles on treadmills all for animals in need.

Early-bird prices are just $35 for adults and $15 for children (12 years and younger) January 22 to 31. Prices increase February 1, so don’t miss out on this special and register today at furryscurry.org.

All registered participants will receive the official Furry Scurry T-shirt and printable race bib. People who fundraise beyond their entry fees can have an even bigger impact on the lives of homeless pets and earn some cool Furry Scurry swag.  

Register as an individual, or create a team with family, friends or coworkers near and far.  Start walking now or on our virtual event day – it’s up to you!

Friends of the League and Instagram influencers had this to say about their Furry Scurry experiences:

“We walk/run because every shelter animal should have the chance at finding their forever home” – Nelliee and adopter Courtnee (follow at @nellieethetripod).

“Getting to see so many cute dogs at the Furry Scurry is one of our favorite events. Since it had to be virtual last year, we decided to brighten other people’s day, so Henry dressed up in his happiest costume (a giant rainbow) and we walked several miles. The honks and smiles made us so happy—almost as happy as knowing we were helping end pet homelessness and animal suffering! We can’t wait to participate in 2021!” – Henry and owner Elle (follow at @costumecanine).

The 2021 Furry Scurry is made possible by our community partners, including lead sponsors Hill’s Pet Nutrition and MetLife Pet Insurance. Businesses interested in sponsoring the event should contact the Dumb Friends League for more information.
